Silverman’s cloud at Comedy Central is not laced with a silver lining

By HollywoodNews.com

Hollywoodnews.com: Comedy Central has unplugged “The Sarah Silverman Program” despite fans rallying for another season on Twitter.

The program wrapped its third season last month. According to Digital Spy, the show was almost booted last year after Silverman and her producer rob Schrab came to blows with the cable network over their budget being cut. A co-financing deal with Logo was struck and Silverman got legs for a third season.

Silverman has two films coming out: “Peep World” and “Take This Waltz,” a drama which stars Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams.

    That’s a real shame. There is soooooo much hack, trite, painfully unfunny crap on TV and of course that means a funny and original show like “The Sarah Silverman Program” has to get booted. There has not been a show with this much creative, gleeful absurdity since Chris Elliott’s “Get a Life.”

    Please don’t tell me Comedy Central is bringing back “The Unfunny Mind of Mencia.”
